Chances are that there  may be some kind of ghost entry on one of the GC's
Try and track back which GC is causing the problem and change it there. This
is a really nasty problem and the only real way is to turn off all GC's make
the change and then turn on all the GC's and perform a full replication. 

Its a nightmare

Subject: [exchangelist] Distibution Lists appearing everywhere

OK, here is the deal...hopefully someone can help...because I am out of
I have an AD forest with 20 subdomains. Now within these trees, i have 4
seperate exchange systems...totally seperate from eachother. Now each
group has distribution lists...simple enough.
The problem is, the distribution lists are showing up in everyones address
books. The users are being filtered just fine, but the dist. lists are
Now i have gone into ADSI edit and for each distribution list properties,
gone to the showInAddressBook property menu and changed the value so as
the list will  only appear in their respective AB. Now this works for 15
minutes, until a replication is called and after that, it reverts to the
origional settings. I have tried working on the permissions, but to no
avail. The schema will place every exchange address books value back to
the distribution lists.
Any ideas?
